Somebody else has noticed!

"Our political parties are corpses...." is the opening to the Peter Hitchens column in The Mail on Sunday this week, linked here. A taster: The cold, miserable truth is that both our major political parties are corpses, their original purposes long forgotten, their loyal members driven away or sidelined, their traditional voters taken for granted. Every so often, by a mysterious process, one of them is declared electable and the other is declared unelectable. And we, the voters, do as we are told. By whom? For what purpose?
